(who thirsting after his estate conspired to take away his life) after a 
long & sharpe imprisonm' in the Presse yard at Newgate & after in 
the Tower of London & other Goales, did w'*" admired wisdome 
prudence & courage, approve himselfe an eminent assertor of the 
Lawes & liberties of this kingdome, by making such a defence in their 
severall bloody Tribunalls (viz' their vpper bench barre & high Court 
of Justice) as that he put to silence those wicked Judges, who sat 
there w'"^ designe to take away his life, & though reduced to the 
greatest want & misery, w* his severe oppressors (by sale of all his 
Lands, cutting downe his woods, & demolishing the principall Seate 
of his family at Cothelstone before specified) could bring vpon him 
(having nothing left whereby to subsist, but what his aged mother the

Letter from S"' Sackvile Crowe, Bt., i6g8. 

It is many yeares since I have heard in my family that a considerable 
Branch of it tooke Sanctuary in Russia from y= Violent persecutions 
of Qeen Mary of England against the Reformed. And y' since I have 
understood from my Vncle Henry Crow y'^ youngest brother of my 
father (who was afterwards a Colonel in y'= Service of K. Charles ist 
of England in y'^ time of y^ Civil warrs hear) that he carried a foot 
Company from this Countrey where I now hve into the Service of 
y= Emperor of Russia, in whose service against the Poles he continued 
for 3 yeares and in that time was very intimately acquainted w* y^ 
Cheif or father of yo' family in that Country, who I presume might 
be yo'' father or Grandfather with whom he renewed the acquaintance 
of the Relation in our families and from whom he received great 
respects And he gave me this farther account of yo'' family that 
they were possest of a very considerable estate in that Countrey & at 
that time retayned their native Language and Religion and yo"" 
Ancestor of whom I speak a Martiall brave man in great esteem w'l^ 
the Emperor and bore his Standard but unhappily killed in an 
Engagement against the Enemy while my Vncle was there. And 
this I tell you as what I think very much for y"^ Honor of yo'' 
family that yo'' selfe & noble father by the figures you make in yo"^ 
severall Stations keep up that Honor of yo'' house and you have no 
friend or relation can wish greater access to it then I do 

my Dau"" is not Arm but Jane Crow 

all that I can remember beyond my father is that our family was a 
very ancient family in Suffolk, Thomas Crow the elder removed 
himselfe into Kent where he first purchased an estate in which Countrey 
and in Sussex his issue after him enjoyed a considerable estate untill 
my Grandfather W"" Crow by being become surety for others in very 
great sums was forced to sell it & my father after by his suffrings for 
K. Cha: i: of this Kingdom (and never recompenced by his son as 
few were of many sufferers for his father who wear considerable in 
estate & quality) very much reduced in his fortune but God be praised 
there is yet a competent foundation for y= next generation to build 
upon etc^ 

Yo'' very Affectionate Kinsman 
and humble servant 
Carmarthen 11 June 1698. Sackvile Crow. 

I find you very perfect in all the surviving remains of our family 
in England as in their names (excepting the name of my Daughter).

Field Family. 

This Letter is directed to me Jn° Grant. (No. i.) 

Herewith I send y* ace' of y^ Families of y= Sedleys & Fields, 
but cannot yet Learn where my Great Grandfather was marr"^ ; I am 
certain my Great Grandmother's maiden name was Katherine Sedley 
& my Great Grandfathers name was Tho'^ Field ; Cozin Sedley 
tells me y' there has been marriages between y= 2 Families of y'= 
Sedleys Sz: y'' Fields since y' of my Great Grandfathers ; I am very 
sorry y' I did not make myself better acquainted w'*" our Genealogy 
before y'= deaths of my elder Relations, who could have given me 
a good ace' of these things, but I did not then trouble myself about it, 
having no thought of being y'= better for it ; I shall be much obliged 
to y" if you will be so kind S' to search y^ books of Sergeant Briges 
(w'^'' was formerly in y^ hands of S'^ Harry S' George) & perhaps y" 
may find a more particular ace' than what I now send ; The first of 
our Originall was S' Edm'^ Field (as I am inform'd) he had y'= Arms 
(^ch ^g jjQ^ bear) presented to him for some great exploit w'^'^ he did, 
I believe 'tis near 3 Centuries ago, & he & many of his Successors 
liv'd in another Country and not in Hertfordsh"', I have heard y'= name 
of y'^ Country but have really forgot it, but y"= Fields of later Years 
lived in Hertfordsh"" & was possest of a very good Estate there till 
they sold part of it to y= Sedleys, & y*^ main part was seiz'd in 
K. Cha: ist Reign & then our Family was forc'd to fly, they had 
also a good Estate in Ireland call'd Balie Castle by y* River Channon, 
y' also was seiz'd, & y'= Family was dispers't ; if you will be pleas'd 
to observe S"' at the bottom of y^ Paper where y'= Family of y'= Fields 
is, Johannes Field & Margaretta Uxor ejus ; and in y= other Paper 
of y^ Sedleys, Johannes Sedley and Anna Uxor ejus filia Johannis 
Colepeper, w'^'^ perhaps if compared might be Sisters ; I have often 
heard my father say y' S'' Thomas Colepeper & he was Relations 
by marriage ; I have writt to Esq'' Darrell at Calehill who is a 
Relation also of my Fathers to know if he can inform me but beg 
yt yu yyiii look in S' Harry S' George's Books, & hope you will find 
out something or other of it, & what y" think proper of demanding 
for y'^ trouble I shall w'*' great allacrity pay it ; If you will please to 
let me know when you can conveniently spare an hour (or when you 
are to become visable) & I will call on you to settle this matter, 
& be not under any apprehension S' that being in my Company will 
lessen y' honour. Our humble Service attends y"' self, M'^ Pink &

' This Letter is Directed to my Sister (No. 2) 

Dear Madam 

I return my Thanks for your obligeing letter, and just spared time 
from my Devotion to inquire of my Aunt those questions you desired, 
and was really glad you gave me so favourable an opportunity of 
discourseing of something else than Religious matters, w'^'" (God forgive 
me) I really have enough of & so much, that I am almost tired of it. 
Religion I always had a veneration for, but really I find one may have 
too much of a good thing. 

The Ace' my Aunt gives me is this ; My Grandfather's name was 
Thomas Field of Kent, my Grandmother's maiden name was Ursula 
Lushington of Ulcomb in Kent, her Father had an Estate of 300" or 
400" p an8 in Kent, but she had brothers. 

My Great Grandfather was Thomas Field of Diggeswell in Hartford- 
sh'' he had an Estate of 500" p Anr? there ; (he is the Person that is 
in y^ ace' that M"' Grant has of y'' Family of y"= Fields) he married 
Katherine Sedley daur. of Roger Sedley, this Roger Sedley was 
Brother to Henry Sedley, & this Henry Sedley was Father to Cozin 
Sedley, & their Father was Henry Sedley likewise, w'='> I am apt to 
believe is that Henry Sedley Baronet, w'^'' M"" Grant has in y'= Ace' of 
y*= Sedley Family, but shall Enquire that of Cozin Sedley. 

My Great Grandfather's Brother was Rich'' Field, he lyes in y'= 
Castle Church of Windsor w'*' this Inscription, Richard Field heretofore 
Cannon of this College, & Dean of y'^ Church of Gloc'' in reality Doc"' 
in Divinity & Author of y^ 5 books intitled of y" Church, together 
w"^ Elizabeth Harrisia his most religious wife, by whom he left 6 Sons 
and an only da"', here underneath this Marble Stone wait for y'= Return 
of Christ to Perfect & compleat by his coming that happiness they are 
enter'd into, he died in y' Year 1606 aged 55; she died in the Year 
1614 aged 41.

S' 

Being unacquainted with any of Y'^ Function much less with the 
Secrets of Heraldry & my small Acquaintance with you tells me You 
can as well resolve y^ following Query as another, Viz. Quere, Whether 
I can bear the same Coat Armour as my Cousin Henry Summers 
Deceased the son of Henry Summers brother to John Summers My 
fathers father, & who by his great Industry happily procured himself a 
Good Estate. He was born & liv'd first in Braintree in Essex 
afterwards at Hackney & purchased an Estate call'd y"= Manours of 
Gains & East & West Perry in the Parish of Staughton near S* Neots 
in Huntintonshire & by his last Testam' has made me (tho not the next 
akin) sole heir to his estate. He took out his Arms about 10 or 12 
Years ago (as I suppose) & beareth Quarterly, The First Gules, a Rose 
Or ; The Second Vert, a flower de luce of the Second ; The third as 
y= Second ; the fourth as y'^ first ; over all a fess dancette Erm. As for 
y^ Crest Wreath Mantling & Motto I am wholly in y^ dark. I believe 
I shall be in Town about a month hence when I shall wait upon You 
in the meantime if You will send me Your Opinion in a Line or Two 
You will Obi.

Pray direct For me; to be lift at the ffree-schole in Colchester Essex. 



I received yo" of the ag'*" Instant & have according to our method 
drawn out the pedigree as above. Viz blank Summers the father Henry 
& John, Henry had Issue an other Henry the defunct, John the 
brother of y'= first Henry had issue blank Summrs y'' father of an 
other Henry I meane yo"" self. This being as I understand by yo"" 
Letter the Pedigree. Now Henry & John being brothers both have 

143 



equall Right to the same coat of Amies that blank Summers their 
father used & their issue also the same right, This only excepted that 
if Henry were the Elder brother John & his issue must use a cressant 
for a distintion as the second house, but if John were the elder brother 
p contra the first Henry & his issue must beare the distintion. I have 
not time so sudenly to search for the Crest but will doe it in a little 
time which is all at present from 

S'&c. 



S"' if I have misunderstood yo"^ 

Letter be pleased to informe me wherein 

& I will rectifie the pedigree.
